The Future of Digital Roles 2018

February 12, 2018

#EcomChat on Monday 12th February will discuss “The future of digital roles”.

2017 witnessed continued maturity in ecommerce, for example the increased use of automation and AI/ML to improve personalisation (predictive search/sort) and customer service (chatbots). This is having an impact on team structures and recruitment policy, as digital teams look for the optimal organisational structure and resource plan to support their business strategy.

The lovely folks at Cranberry Panda (if you don’t know them, they’re specialists in helping clients and candidates fill digital roles) are running their annual Ecommerce Salary Survey (here’s the 2017 report if you want a teaser of last year’s insights), so we’re teaming up with them to provide insight for the report and to get their perspective on how the digital market is evolving, based on what they’re seeing in the recruitment space.

Please help them by completing the survey – it only takes a few minutes and you’ll get a free copy of the 2018 report as a thank you!

Today’s chat will discuss how the changing face of digital is impacting team structures, digital roles and salaries. EcomChat has a great mix of client side, agency, freelance and consultant digital specialists + people with complimentary skills from other departments, so it should be an interesting chat.

As ever: there will be 3 conversation starter questions & anyone is welcome to join in using the #EcomChat hashtag on Twitter.

Here are the 3 questions.

  1. Ecommerce is maturing – how is it changing the demand for digital skills?
  2. What new skills are becoming important and where are organisations investing the most?
  3. How do you retain good people – what keeps you in a role?

Join us and Cranberry Panda at 1pm UK time on Monday and do share this post either on Twitter or via email with anyone you think would be interested.

Thanks, Dan & James.
